ommon Name: Petitgrain Bigarade
Latin Name: Citrus aurantium L. ssp. amara engl.
Aroma: The aroma is somewhat of a soft and sweet green floral yet herbaceous. It has a very soothing aroma with notes of fresh citrus and almost a woodsy but earthy herbal tone. On the dry down, I found a nice green citrus aroma reminiscent of unripened oranges with fainter floral notes. The final dry down had a hint of soft, sweet floral notes with a perfect amount of round herbal tones. The green notes hint at the life breathing leaves the oil is obtained from making this an oil I keep coming back to.
It functions as a wonderful middle note in blends but can be used as a top note depending on the blend.
